Forum: classic_tv Subject: Names of a few 1940s/1950s TV series with no surviving episodes

The Gallery of Madame Liu-Tsong (1951-1951, first US series with an Asian-American star)
Bowling Headliners (1948-1950)
Camera Headlines (1948-1949)
I.N.S. Telenews (1948-1949)
Your Television Shopper (1948-1950)
The Susan Raye Show (1950-1950)
Starlit Time (1950-1950, Bela Lugosi was a guest in one episode)
Spin the Picture (1949-1950)
Shadow of the Cloak (1951-1952)
It's a Business (1952-1952, starring Bob Haymes, Leo De Lyon and Dorothy Loudon)
Have a Heart (1955-1955)
The Hazel Scott Show (1950-1950, first US network series starring a Black woman....did fairly well in ratings for a DuMont series, but she was blacklisted and as such the show couldn't get a sponsor)
The Joan Edwards Show (1950-1950)
Wisdom of the Ages (1952-1953, hosted by Jack Barry)
It's Alec Templeton Time (1955-1955, and probably the only television series hosted by a blind satirical pianist)

Of course there are many others. If anyone can help me find the names of other series with no surviving episodes, I'd really appreciate it.
